Summary about Sciatica in English

Sciatica is a disease in which pain is radiated with the length of the sciatic nerve in the body towards the hips and each leg. The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc within the lumbar backbone, which compresses or irritates the nerve. This can cause sharp pain, tingling, or numbness within the buttocks and legs.

What are the Symptoms of Sciatica?

These include:

  • Shooting pain in the lower back

  • Numbness in the path of the sciatic nerve

  • Weakness in the affected leg

  • Pain worsens with prolonged sitting or sudden movements

  • Discomfort or difficulty in moving the leg or foot

  • Symptoms often affect only one side of the body

What are the Causes of Sciatica?

The causes of sciatica can include:

  • Herniated or slipped disc

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Spinal stenosis

  • Piriformis syndrome

  • Lumbar spinal injury or trauma

  • Pregnancy, as the growing uterus may press on the sciatic nerve

  • Rarely, sciatica can be caused by infections or inflammatory conditions affecting the nerve

  • Perform a physical examination
